Brooks Williams has worked stages worldwide for over twenty-five years, touring constantly in the US, UK and Europe. He hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, Brooks is a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues, as well as compelling covers from the likes of Dave Alvin, Bessie Smith and Mose Allison. His own songs are thoroughly alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters and are rich in blues pathos.

Adults: $20.
Children and Students: $10
